Hmnm, $300 you say? That may be a little high in my situation - I probably won't be overclocking much more than I am now... Maybe on my next build I'll go water cooling.

Thanks for the links all, I'm goin' to give them a good read over when I get home. Thanks!

Would I be able to easily expand that to a CPU + GPU in the future? One of the reasons I'm getting it (mainly) is because my GPU runs so freaking hot

mosfets for my mobo, also called the voltage reulators. the things around the cpu socket with heatsinks on em.

2 rads = 2 radiators just abbreviated

If you're gonna be overclocking that proc and wc'ing the gpu, I'd strongly recommend going for 2 seperate loops. there's gonna be a lot of heat put out from both. You could do it, it just wouldn't give you the temps you might want.

and did you take a look through this?

Ahh, I see. That's some extreme water coolin'

But, as of now, it's a tad bit out of my price range. I'll look back into water cooling early next year when I have some extra moolah

2 loops isn't worth it... if he were running 2 285's, oc'd cpu, and wanted to watercool his chipset and maybe mosfets, then yeah two loops would be a good idea.

But for his proc and a 285, a single loop with a 360 rad will do just fine

One of these days I really should get around to finishing that Guide...

2 and a half months for winter break means I should have some spare time.
